    Pros

    none really, unless you are looking for an H1B visa which they will use to lock you in

    management has no clue where to go and is in cost cutting everything mode. Most benefits are gone

    I worked at AMD full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There were some very smart people to work with and learn from when i started at AMD

    Cons

    All the good people left and we started hiring big names who came there because they did something in their previous job. Gave them large salaries, big positions and took all motivation away from them to work and prove something anymore ..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring names and look for people who are motivated to build something instead of hiring people who want to tell people what to build ..
